Session 6: Types of Thinking

It helps to know what kinds of thinking are going on when we are facilitating. People don’t talk about these things much, but they are important because they help the facilitator to design questions and activities to help with the problem-solving process.

In this session, you’ll learn what divergent and convergent thinking are and what impact they have on the facilitated meeting. We’ll also explore the grey area between the two types of thinking.
